Flavorless. All I could taste was the rice the toasted panko bread crumb topping I added. I even added Worcestershire sauce dry mustard. I ate one serving tossed the rest, something I never do. The one thing I should have done was substitute chicken broth for at least half the milk. That would have helped a bit, I'm sure.

Very good! Better than the packages from the store. Will definitely make again.

I will try this recipe, but I'm not really certain what the eggs bring to the dish, I'm an egg lover.

sounds very tasty, may go well with bbq chicken or pork

My understanding is that "casserole dish" or "baking dish" refers to glass, stoneware or pyrex. When the reference is to a "pan," I always believe it means a metal pan. I like glass/pyrex for ease of cleanup and being able to see the color of the bottom of a baked dish.

This is exactly correct! A baking or casserole dish indicates glass or pyrex, while a baking pan means to use metal.

Question for you on baking dishes. Now when you say "casserole dish" or "baking dish" are you talking about either pyrex or glass? When you are talking about a pan/dish to put something in for the oven; is there a difference between something metal and something glass? 2. How do I mince a clove of garlic?

lass baking dishes hold heat longer. the real benefit is after the casserole is put on the table it will stay hot longer

I once read if you are using dark non-stick or glass, to lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees. Never tried it. Maybe now is the time.

Hey, you can use a garlic press to mince garlic (found at any store), or press the flat end of a knife against the garlic clove and smash it, then chop it. Simple as that!
